Art and Time | Film

Film conveys with every frame what kind of attitude you have, how well prepared you were, how much you approached the subject and the people, and how much you know what you want to tell or what you're looking for.

Film doesn't have to illuminate every angle, but it has to shine on the one aspect you have chosen.

It should tell stories that leave secrets open, that allow a retreat for the imagination and don't moralize or try to explain the world. It should raise more questions than provide answers and stand on its own, independent, convincing, stylistically confident.

The more you know about the process of film making, about the preparation, the research, the creation of a shooting concept, the production, the post production, the photography, analogue and digital, the sound, the editing, the post-production, the freer you will be in realizing your idea.

At the same time, you have to learn early enough to welcome the unpredictable, not to let it throw you off course, to accept it as an enrichment and to incorporate it into the film, which, like life, cannot be planned entirely.

I see my task as accompanying all these steps, fulfilling the students' enthusiasm for this great medium and supporting them in finding their strengths and working on their very own signature.

I focus on working with analogue film in order to question the arbitrariness and repetitiveness of an image and to choose the texture of the material as an important protagonist. (Tizza Covi)
